Phytoremediation Potential of Aquatic Macrophyte, Azolla

  title={Phytoremediation Potential of Aquatic Macrophyte, Azolla},
  author={Anjuli Sood and Perm L. Uniyal and Radha Prasanna and Amrik Singh Ahluwalia},
Aquatic macrophytes play an important role in the structural and functional aspects of aquatic ecosystems by altering water movement regimes, providing shelter to fish and aquatic invertebrates, serving as a food source, and altering water quality by regulating oxygen balance, nutrient cycles, and accumulating heavy metals. The ability to hyperaccumulate heavy metals makes them interesting research candidates, especially for the treatment of industrial effluents and sewage waste water. The use… CONTINUE READING
